Before leaving for my assignment, I was told cows were mean.
Totally didn't believe anyone. I've never seen a cow do anything but stand in place eating grass.
Needless to say, when I got to this shoot of a family that keeps a cow in a neighboring yard (it's illegal to keep it in their own yard), I thought it would be fairly uneventful.
That was until we were all chased by this one-year-old cow. The children thought they'd take it for a walk, but apparently right after cows eat oats they get a little wild.
I can seriously say I feared for my life. While this "baby" cow looked harmless, when you have 600 lbs. of pure beef running you down, it's terrifying.
Without being insensitive, I did eat a big hamburger following this assignment to calm my nerves.
